The objective of this study was to compare the performance of screening mammography versus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) users.MethodsWe performed a retrospective review of 4628 women who had mammography or breast MRI screening from the beginning of HRT use at three institutions from April 2005 to December 2015. Information of demographics, number of biopsies performed and pathologic outcomes were collected. Sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value (NPV) and positive predictive value (PPV) of screening mammography and MRI were compared.ResultsTotally 11,540 screening studi...

According to results of Swedish Trial by Sophia Zackrisson et al published inLancet Oncology  recently, Breast cancer screening by use of one-view digital breast tomosynthesis with a reduced compression force has higher sensitivity at a slightly lower specificity for breast cancer detection compared with two-view digital mammography andhas the potential to reduce the radiation dose and screen-reading burden required by two-view digital breast tomosynthesis with two-view digital mammography.Reference : One-view breast tomosynthesis versus two-view mammography in the Malm ö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial...

We examined supplemental screening (ie, MRI, ultrasound, or tomosynthesis within 6 months of screening mammogram) among a sample of 2,764 African American (AA) and 691 European American (EA) women with negative or benign screening mammograms for whom we had data from both before and after implementation of breast density notification laws in the state of Michigan. Results indicated a 5-fold increase (from 0.14% to 0.7% of women) in supplemental screening among screen-negative women after passage of the law, driven in large part by an increase in supplemental screening among AA women. Breast density was more predictive of s...
